Twins lose Tuesday night in game that never should’ve been played

The Twins lost 7-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday night in a game that seemed to conspire against them at every turn. First, it rained, and it rained most of the game, finally resulting in a 90-minute weather delay in the bottom of the eighth inning AFTER the Dodgers had busted open a 1-1... Continue Reading »

Twins edge Tigers for 70th win of the season

Well, I’m struggling to find the enthusiasm to write about the Twins as the disappointing 2021 season winds to a close, but here goes nothing… Two sacrifice flies and a home run — Miguel Sano’s 30th — were the difference as the Twins topped the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Tuesday before a home crowd of...

Deja Vu all over again as Twins walk it off for 5-4 win

The Twins are now 8-3 in their last 11 games. However, Monday’s win... Continue Reading »

Twins rebound nicely after Game 1 dud

The Twins lost to the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, mustering all of six hits in the 4-1 loss at Target Field. After the 10-7 loss on Tuesday to the Reds, it amounted to two straight losses and a feeling that the Twins really aren’t ready for prime time. But they won 8-7 on Friday and... Continue Reading »

I haven’t been in the mood after 10-0 loss to M’s

My enthusiasm for this blog took a hit this week after me, my father and son, made our annual trip to Seattle to see the Twins. Unfortunately, of the three-game series, we had tickets to the Tuesday night shellacking, a 10-0 loss that seemed much worse than the actual score. I’ve seen my share of... Continue Reading »

Hi, I’m Rolf Boone, Twins fan.

I became a fan of the Minnesota Twins after a friendly wager in the early 1980s. I survived Ron Davis, the meltdown in Cleveland, Phil Bradley at the Kingdome and then marveled at a rising generation of stars and two World Series wins in 1987 and 1991. Brad Radke made the 1990s bearable, while Kirby Puckett’s eye injury, exit from the game and eventual death made it almost too much to bear. The new century ushered in more talent — Joe Mauer, Johan Santana, Joe Nathan, Torii Hunter, Justin Morneau — and consecutive seasons of playoff baseball, followed by consecutive seasons of losing baseball. A winning season returned in 2015. So here we are. Go Twins.
